Blades continue to impress

Blades fans and those who take a keen interest in the Championship would’ve known prior to this season that Sheffield United, under the astute management of Chris Wilder, are no mugs. Not only are they tough to get the better of, they’re a clever, attractive, ball-playing side, a side that can hurt teams in a variety of ways. The wider footballing audience now know just what the Blades, currently occupying a respectable seventh place, are capable of.

Sheffield United are yet to taste defeat on the road, which is quite remarkable, but that’s not to say they’ve not been effective at home. They’re anything but easy to get the better of at Bramall Lane, where they’ve conceded just seven goals in seven games and have kept an encouraging three clean sheets. After a few narrow and arguably unjust defeats in front of a home crowd, Wilder’s men have steadied themselves of late to go unbeaten in their last three at home, two of which they’ve won. During that time, the Blades have scored seven and conceded only three.

Away-day woes for Magpies

Newcastle come into this fixture off the back of a pleasing draw against the champions on Saturday. That result should leave the Magpies feeling confident, though a quick glance at their away form may negate such feelings.

Newcastle currently rank as the 15th-worst away team in the division, as they’ve claimed just six points on their travels. Steve Bruce’s men have picked up two wins on the road, but they’ve lost each of their other five away matches. Scoring goals has been a problem for the Magpies, who’ve notched only six away goals, while keeping teams at bay has also been an issue, as they’ve conceded no less than 16, shipping two or more on five occasions. Newcastle rank as the Premier League’s third-worst team in terms of shots on target conceded away from home. They’ve surrendered an average of 7.29.

Hosts hard to oppose

Newcastle did get themselves an encouraging result at the weekend, but their away exploits simply haven’t been up to scratch. The bet that therefore stands out is ‘Sheffield United to Win & Under 3.5 Goals’.

The Blades don’t often go mad in terms of goals scored at home – they’re averaging 1.29 and are yet to score more than three – but they’re very good at restricting teams. They’ve got the tools to break through against a weak Newcastle side, while they can also stop a weak attack that has fired blanks in three of the last four (away).

Moreover, while Sheffield United are the sixth-best Premier League side in terms of shots on target conceded at home, surrendering an average of 3.57, Newcastle are the third-worst on the road at the other end, posting an average of just 3.00 for.
